Great opportunity for an eager employee, but too much bureaucracy to move things along

Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Menlo Park, CA (US)

I worked at Sun Microsystems

ProsWealth of resources, telecommuting and flex office policy means you can work from anywhere, lots of opportunities for learning and taking on extra responsibilities.

ConsThe resources are burdened with bureaucracy, because so many people telecommute, the buildings feel ghostly and you never know where people are on a given day.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot sure how things have changed since the Oracle acquisition, but quicker turn around times for inter department tasks would have been helpful.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
